Our school is a good upper secondary school, our mission is to offer high-quality teaching to our students. The line of studies is defined by the legislation and studies enable to apply to all universities and universities of applied sciences. The studies aim at the Finnish matriculation examination which is highly valued in Europe.
In addition to the general line of studies, we offer unique courses of our own. We offer two different demo courses in natural sciences, and they are organized in the Jyväskylä University’s Konnevesi Research Station. We also offer a hiking course, in which students are able to hike in some national parks or hiking routes in Finland.
In our school, we organize exceptionally many excursions to different destinations. For example, the University of Jyväskylä, theater, and other interesting attractions.
We have traditions of our own. For example, we have live music during the Prom dances. We organize several sports activities during the semester.
Demo courses in natural sciences are held in the Jyväskylä University’s Konnevesi Research Station and students stay there for two days. The school takes care of the costs. On the hiking course, students visit a national park or a hiking route. School offers also bus trips. In these courses, students learn a lot about science and nature and also spend a nice time with schoolmates.
Students who graduated from our school apply to all universities and universities of applied sciences in Finland. The nearest university is the University of Eastern Finland (uef.fi) and the nearest university of applied sciences is Savonia (savonia.fi). We cooperate with several universities, but we have a special co-working bond with the University of Jyväskylä.
